[Autom. eng. transl.] 'The development of aquatic competence': a new paradigm that goes beyond the mere teaching of swimming but whose ultimate goal is the complete control of the environment and one's body in water. The possibility of knowing how to solve any problem that may occur in the liquid environment is the premise of the complete safety of the student in the water and the possibility of dealing with any type of water sport. A simple and pragmatic university textbook set up in a scientific manner with clear and precise information and suggestions. The text answers four fundamental questions: why it is necessary to propose them; who must benefit in a way adapted to the individual characteristics (physical, socio-cognitive and emotional-affective) typical of the various ages; how to teach them through an analysis of the main teaching-learning methods, styles and strategies; finally where to propose them with explicit reference to the various contexts. The discussion is suitable for those who choose to become effective teachers in the field of psycho-motor and motor-sports activities: students and graduates in motor sciences or in primary education sciences, but also masters , teachers or instructors looking for an update of their cultural and scientific knowledge
